Hi all,

i have a tabout line producing a table i need, except i would like to have it flipped so that vertical variable typesex becomes horizontal, so i can append other variables to the table

here is what i do:

tabout typesex    using $outdir/race.tex,  style(tab)   c(mean lnwage se lnwage ) replace  svy f(3 3) clab(Mean SE)  lay(col)  sum 

to get this:
typesex		 Mean    SE
H. men  	3.036   (0.006)
H. women        2.700   (0.006)
Gays    	2.984   (0.008)
Lesbians        2.880   (0.008)
Total   	2.883   (0.004)

but i want typesex labels to be the column headers and means in one line below each header. basically i want four columns by typesex and other variables (meens and ses) listed below.

any idea how to do this?

thanks a lot, Josef
